FTJP and Helping Others #general

Carol Rombro Rider
 

Menno--You have a point when you complain that some of us are not always
using the important words "please" and "thank you" when we correspond with
one another. It may also be that some of us are intimidated when we do not
know to whom we write when using the FTJP. But don't get discouraged; there
are more of us out in Jewishgen land who will gladly say "please", "thank
you" and even offer our time and experience to reach out and help others.

There is a gentleman in Baltimore that I have known for over ten years.
He is retired, and spends about 7 days a week doing genealogy--mostly for
other people.
As a mentor, he has taught me an invaluble lesson. When he does research for
other people, he learns things that he may otherwise never have learned just
doing research for himself. There are resources he uses that he may never
use again. There are places and names he comes across that he may never see
again. But inevitably, as life will do, it comes back in other ways to help
him in his research.

For those who ask only for themselves and will not ever help anyone
else, I can only say that they can never learn the game of genealogy like
others will. I suspect that many of them will be forever looking for the
great, big genealogy file with their families' names on it. (If you are not
familiar with this file, please see the Jewishgen Infofiles and look for Dan
Leeson's "Genealogical Fable". It will enable you to locate everything you
have ever wanted to know about your ancestors very quickly......)

Don't be discouraged. Keep enjoying Jewishgen for all the good and
friendly people you will meet online. And Menno, work hard on your family
tree. After all, one day you may find that you and I are related--and then
just think--you will already have done all the work for me on that side of
the tree--and I will give you a great, big THANK YOU!

Tips for Visiting Vienna #general

Subject: Tips for Visiting Vienna, Austria (Wien)

In JGDG Digest of May 31, 1999, Maria Krane asked for places where to go in
Vienna for any researches.

Beneath the places tourists use to visit in Vienna, there are different
Archives and Libraries in Vienna which might be of interest for GenSearchers.
Until now, work in Austrian Archives is normally free of expenses except for
self-costs for copies! Take enough Austrian Schilling-coins (1, 5, 10) with
you!

www.oesta.gv.at has some tips for Genners, and parts of Vienna Maps where
Archives to be find. The Property Database of Dr. Steiner (Lorraine Bertelsen
mentioned it in JewishGen Digest of May 31, 1991) is a part of this Archive,
Oesterreichisches Staatsarchiv. Mainly they hold the Kriegsarchiv of the
former Austrian Empire, with some personal data of WW I. too. If you are
interested in military, you should visit the Heeresgeschichtliches Museum, in
Vienna, Arsenal near Suedbahnhof.

You can find links to all other Austrian and to some international Archives
and Libraries at www.oesta.gv.at too.

The Town of Vienna in Rathaus, townhall, web-site www.magwien.gv.at/ma08,
click "culture" for Wiener Stadt- und Landesarchiv, holds the
Sterbeprotokolle, death certificates and testaments, for all persons resided
in Vienna at the date of their decease. You must know the No. of the district
(Bezirk) where they passed away. They store micro-films with birth-, marriage-
and death-data of the Jewish Community (IKG-Israelitische
Kultusgemeinde) also. Naturalization documents at Dept. MA 61 on written
request only.

and many other books re resistance and persuance.
1 US-$ = about 12,6 ATS. Mailing fees in addition.

The Universitaetsarchiv holds all sub- and inscription forms back to 1365! In
former times the "Nationale", inscriptions to every semester, were filled-in
by the students themselves, stating name of the parents, residence in Vienna,

Re: Jewish Community of Baku #general

Roman Turovsky <r.turovsky@...>
 

A FEW CORRECTIONS:

There are two main groups of "Azeri" Jews in Azerbaijan. One group is
comprised of Caucasian Mountain Jews who have been in the area for many
centuries and speak a language called "Judeo-Tat" which is partly based on
northern Iranian. The other group is formed by Ashenazim who came to
Azerbaijan during the nineteenth century.
IN FACT MOST ASHK. JEWS settled there during WWII i.e. after 1941.



During the first years of the Soviet regime, the Tats had to change
their language to conform to the Latin alphabet instead of preserving the
Hebrew letters. A decade later, in 1938, they were made to use the
Cyrillic
alphabet.
As modern TURKEY switched to Latin alph. Soviet auth. ordered CYrillization
as a tool to separate Azeris (who are turks ethnically) >from their brethren
across the border. AND the smaller nations by default, in keeping with
general russocentric policy.

Also, during the late 1930's many Tat Jewish cultural
institutions were shut down as well some synagogues.
IN FACT the TATS were not considered Jews by the Soviet authorities and
their assimilation is attributable to their previously MEDIEVAL lifestyle
(often of Corsican-Sardinian types of violence), and newfound possibilities.

Despite Soviet efforts to assimilate the Tats, they have managed to
preserve many of their old traditions, and there has been very little
intermarriage.
There was INtermarriage and plenty of it. I personally knew several
partTats.


Some Georgian and Bukharan Jews also live in Azerbaijan.

In Baku there are "ten or fifteen" Jewish organizations, including
Zionist and youth groups and an Azerbaijan-Israel Friendship Organization.,
and there are three Sysnagogues. The largest and oldest synagogue is for
"Mountain Jews," and it is The other two synagogues are used respectively
by the Ashkenazim and Georgians. The rabbis are locally educated.

in 1987 Hebrew courses were allowed to be offered in Baku and now
Hebrew
can be studied at two high schools and at the University.

There are five Jewish schools Baku and Quba and a Baku community
newspaper.

Despite the loosening up of restrictions against Jews, 27,650 Azeri
Jews
have emigrated to Israel since 1989.
There were few restrictions on Jews there as Azeris were not really
anti-semitic (they reserved their bile for Armenians). Jews lived very
comfortably in Azerb. as Moscow's long arm just wasn't long enough there.

Maly Trostinec, near Minsk #general

Records of Immigrants to Canada, Part One #general

Stanley Diamond
 

Ancestry Library has a new database which is available for
free searching for a few more days.

It is called : "Records of Immigrants to Canada, Part One"

The Ancestry description is as follows:

"Historically, Canada has been the destination for millions of immigrants
from around the world seeking a better life in North America. Compiled
from a variety of sources, this database is a collection of over 83,000
records between 1780 and 1906 relating to immigrants to Canada.

Researchers will find the name of the immigrant and year and source
of the original record. The entries in this database are not complete
transcriptions of the original records; an e-mail link is provided at the
bottom of each results page for those who would like to purchase a
more detailed electronic transcript for a particular entry. This
database can be immensely helpful for researchers with Canadian
ancestors. We will periodically be adding more Canadian
immigration data to our online library, so return to Ancestry.com often.

Bibliography: Anonymous. "Records of Immigrants to Canada."
[database on-line] Orem, UT: Ancestry, Inc., 1999.

To search this database, go to:
http://www.ancestry.com/ancestry/search/3795.htm

As a test, I did a search for my grandparents and their family. Sure
enough, they are included in the database.

Of course, ALL the Jewish names >from the 1901 Census of Canada
have been indexed by Glen Ecker of Toronto and are available on
microfiche >from AVOTAYNU Publishing Inc. However, if your family
arrived 1901 and you do not have quick access to the microfiche,
this is an easy way to find the references.

As an example of the search results, here is the enry for my
grandfather:

Ancestry Library has a new database which is available for
free searching for a few more days.

It is called : "Records of Immigrants to Canada, Part One"

The Ancestry description is as follows:

"Historically, Canada has been the destination for millions of immigrants
from around the world seeking a better life in North America. Compiled
from a variety of sources, this database is a collection of over 83,000
records between 1780 and 1906 relating to immigrants to Canada.

Researchers will find the name of the immigrant and year and source
of the original record. The entries in this database are not complete
transcriptions of the original records; an e-mail link is provided at the
bottom of each results page for those who would like to purchase a
more detailed electronic transcript for a particular entry. This
database can be immensely helpful for researchers with Canadian
ancestors. We will periodically be adding more Canadian
immigration data to our online library, so return to Ancestry.com often.

Bibliography: Anonymous. "Records of Immigrants to Canada."
[database on-line] Orem, UT: Ancestry, Inc., 1999.

To search this database, go to:
http://www.ancestry.com/ancestry/search/3795.htm

As a test, I did a search for my grandparents and their family. Sure
enough, they are included in the database.

Of course, ALL the Jewish names >from the 1901 Census of Canada
have been indexed by Glen Ecker of Toronto and are available on
microfiche >from AVOTAYNU Publishing Inc. However, if your family
arrived 1901 and you do not have quick access to the microfiche,
this is an easy way to find the references.

As an example of the search results, here is the enry for my
grandfather:

Surname: DIAMOND

Given name
or title: Max

Age: 38

Comments: Immigrated to Canada in 1898

Source/
Event: 1901 Census of Canada: Province of Quebect
(Extraction of those who were born outside of
Canada and have given a year of immigration
to Canada)

Good luck...

Does any one know of a Professor KHayim. SHmuel ELISHKOVITCH in Belarus
or surrounding area?
The letter states: Traby, September 4, 1922. What does Traby mean??

Did they have typewriters in 1924.
That is as much as I can tell you >from the letter it self. Can any one
help me??
Beatrice, the word "melitse" could be MELITSIA in Russian means Police.
Typewriter existed in Russia in 1924, for sure. It was German type MERSEDES
typewriter. If you send your letter by e-mail it will be easier to help ou
with all unfamiliar words.

I must have the luck of the Irish, but I so far I haven't had trouble getting
on to the new site -- Poo-poo-poo -- as they say in the Old Country!!

However, now that I have found the info concerning the new films for Budapest
- can someone tell me which district is which ?? Where are Districts 1 - 4 ??

My parents were both born in Pestszentersebet, and I have grandparents that
died there -- but where would that suburb be??

I have easy access to a Family History Center, but I cannot afford to order
dozens of films!!
Thanks in advance for your help. If someone needs a look up -- let me know.
I'd be happy to help.
See you in NY.
